libbybowles asked:
This is spectacular. I love the godets in the back. What a lovely detail. I'm curious about your leaf motifs. Were they written that way or are they upside-down? This is my current obsession with knitting lace sweaters top-down. I've been trying to figure out why patterns don't usually work out when you simply knit the chart from the top to bottom and have just resolved myself to choosing ones that look nice upside-down. But your leaves, especially the wider motif, look like they were designed that way. Please enlighten me!
Sunshine569 answered:
Yes you are correct. I worked all the patterns in thier original orientation except the wider motif (twisted stem leaves), I had to rework that one so I could knit the pattern from top to bottom. This is so all the tips of the leaves would be pointing the same direction. I could not work or rework the other leaf patterns because of the increases/decreases and the changing stitch count to make the pattern. I had to move where I did the yarn overs. Instead of the yarn overs being by the stem, they are now at the tips of the leaves.
JosTricot asked:
This cardigan is so gorgeous ! Does the pattern is included in the course or you took it somewhere else ?
Sunshine569 answered:
The course includes the basic construction. You get to pick the lace patterns you want to use. That is what is so fun!
